Elevator to the Gallows

Synopsis

Scheming lovers Florence (Jeanne Moreau) and Julien (Maurice Ronet) engineer the perfect murder of her husband, but things get complicated. Not only was this classic film noir Moreau’s ticket to international stardom, it was a stunning debut for 24-year-old director Louis Malle. The legendary Miles Davis score, still one of the most famous of all jazz soundtracks, is as seminal as the film itself.
